THE SNUG HARBOK.

Deaervedly Endorsed Improvement A,
A meeting of the provincial direc
tors of the proposed Boatmen's Col
umbian Snug Harbor, for the care of
aged and disabled seamen was held
at the Harper house last evening.
Judge J. M. Gould, of Moline, was
called to the chair, F. J. Walz, of
Davenport, being made secretary.
Rev. It. Frankland, general superin
tendent of the Western Seamen's
Friend society, the organization that
is poshing the matter forward, was
present, and explained in detail the
manner in which it is proposed to
carry out this worthy project.
For a Fund of S'iO.OOO.
A general discussion was also in
dulged in, the gentlemen acquaint
ing themselves With the subject by
conversation with Rev. Frankland.
The plan is to raise an initial fund of
$50,000. $-20,000 to be used for the
purchase and improvement of Credit
island, on which the institution is to
be located, and $80,000 for the first
building. Plans for raising the tirst
fund wore discussed, it seeming to
be the opinion that $10,000 should be
raised in the three cities and the
other $40,000 along the other western
waterways. A resolution offered by
S. F. Smith of Davenport was then
adopted as follows:
Resolved. That the action so far
taken in the matter of securing a
permanent home for aged and disa
bled seamen and boatmen, to be
known as the Columbian Snug Har
bor, be approved by this meeting.
That all the resolutions heretofore
adopted in this connection be hearti
ly endorsed. Also we advise the ma
turing of a plan securing subscrip
tions to the amount of $50,000 for the
carrying out of the initial steps in
this worthy object, the establishment
of such a home on Credit island, and
that we give it our united and earn
est support and do what we can to
accomplish the project.
After some further discussion of
the matter the meeting adjourned.
The -snug harbor project is one
that has already received the sub
stantial endorsement and worth
ily, too of the three cities. It
is" an enterprise which should enlist
in its behalf the energies and efforts
of all our people, not only because of
its deserving nature, but for the rea
son that it offers so much that is of
interest and advantage to the entire
community. The character of the
citizens of the three cities who have
thus far been actively engaged in fur
thering it should be abundant com
mendation for it. It is assuredly to
be hoped it will succeed in every

This morning President Jackson of

MABEL LAGRANGE'S STORY
The Woman tinllty of Thursday Night's lu
fanttrlue and Others Involved.
The Davenport Democrat in con
nection with its description of the
drowning by Mabel LaGrange of Mi
lan of her infant child in the river
Thu sdav night, gives this additional
About three weeks ago a young
wonian.alled at the residence of
County Physician DeArmand and
asked to 'be sent to Mercy hospital as
she soon expected to become a
mother. She explained her request
by saying that she had been to the
hospital but having no money she
was directed to the county for assist
ance. She said she had married
Oliver Ireman at Muscatine one year
ago. but that he lived only a couple
of months. Previous to ,his death
they had lived a few miles out of
Davenport. She even named the doe
tor who was in attendance upon Ire
man during his sickness. After her
husbond's jleath she worked for var
ious people in and about Davenport.
All of her people, she said, were dead
except one brother, who lived in
Wisconsin, and he was very poor.
She gave her maiden name as Mabel
LaGrange, said her home had been
in Pleasant Valley township; that her
father, mother and a number of sis
ters were dead. "
At a Vavenp6rt Hospital.
There being apparently no home for
the woman, she was sent to the hospi
tal. On investigation it was learned
that the girl eloped with a young
man named Ireman a year or two ago,
that they reported a marriage ser
vice which was doubted at the time.
Ireman afterward left, and consider
ing the youth of the woman, it is
doubtful if any marriage ceremony
was ever performed without parental
sanction, and none was ever given.
The woman's father and family live
at Milan In view of these facts the
woman was informed that she would
have to go to her home and could
not be kept at the county's expense.
She was at the hospital two days, left
without a protest and evidently went
norae. win lor careiui investigation
her magnificent nerve and artistic
lving would have carried her through
Oliver Ireman. the voting man in
the case, is reported to be a farm
hand who lived in Pleasant allev
and his attentions to Mabel were not
sanctioned by her parents, This ac-
aeeounted for the elopement ami the
failure to get a license in Muscatine,
to which place they eloped his folks
res!i!inr near there.
Items of Interest to Railroad Men Pcmo
nal and Other Mention.
A new flag shanty for Flagman E
Swain, who is now stationed at tht
foot of Eighteenth street, is beinj
built at Beardstovvn. It has beei
sursrested that it would not be a bad
idea to have all flagmen uniforme
and sworn in to do police duty as i
done in many places. It may not be
generally known, but it is a fact that
flagmen often meet with obstinate
and unrulv characters who seem to
take particular delight in doing jus
what thev should not doi and it i
generally done, too, by those who
realize that a flagman is not vested
with full police avthoritv. To obvi-
nte this iliflicultv anil Vive better
protection to the public it is becom
ing the custom to swear mem in anu
uniform them so that their demand
will be instantly heeded.
New Freight House Probable.
Another evidence of the interest
the Rock Island road is taking in the
citv is the tact mat ine com pan v is
seriously contemplating the erection
of a new freight depot at the loca
tion of the present one. The plan is
understood to be to build an exten
sion on the west end of the present
structure, which will extend out to
Twentieth street and be occupied for
offices, the present ouiiunig 10 oe
used for a storehouse. Plans have
not yet been definitely decided upon,
but. the work will in all probability
be done. -

President Kent Says the league Will Rest
This Season Stock well at Work.
From all present indications there
will be no base ball in the I-I league
this year, although the league will
continue over as an organization un
til next season. President Kent has
been in correspondence with the var
ious club presidents of the league for
some time and has found so little in
terest in the matter and the season
has gotten so late that he has sent
out the following letter to the differ
ent clubs, a cony having been re
ceived by President Hodges, of the
Rock Island-Moline clnb:
Jacksonville, 111., April 4. Gen
tlemen: It has been decided jointly
by the Rockford, Rock Island-Moline
and Jacksonville Base Ball associa-,
lions that we will make no more ef
forts to organize the I. -I. league to
put teams in the field for 1893. I
have taken it upon myself to notify
the Sporting Times of Philadelphia
and the Sporting News of St. Louis,
to this effect, and we will keep our
organization in force and call a meet
ing at the regular time in January,
1894, to confer for that year.

Storkwell Hoperul Nevertheless.
Len Stockwell, the well known base
ball player, who was largely instru
mental in starting a team here last
season, has been about this city ami
Davenport and Moline during the
past few flays with a view to getting
up another league. He has met with
considerate encouragement in each
town and there may yet be a leagu
started. Stockwell's plan is to hav
Davenport and Rock Island-Molin
each have a team and then with
one from Jacksonville, Rockford,
Peoria and Burlington it
would make a short circuit
of good towns. By this plan it is
thought that an unusual interest
could be gotten among these three
towns and a series being played in
each place in succession would save
the expense of a jump in railroad
fare. Then again players can be had
Kn much more reasonable terms this
year.and altogether it is thought that
as a park is already located in most
of the towns mentioned, a league
could be conducted on a much more
economical basis. With the warm
spring days base ball interest will
revive and now is the time to make
preparations if any league is to be
